Show Racism the Red Card

,

On Wednesday 27th September Barnsley FC Community Trust welcomed the charity Show Racism the Red Card to deliver their ever-important campaign on Anti-Racism. 

Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity. It was established in January 1996, thanks in part to a donation by then Newcastle United goalkeeper Shaka Hislop. Primary schools from across Barnsley were invited to join us to take part in the half day session with the charity which has now been running for 26 years. 

Education of young people and adults, SRtRC produces educational resources, to challenge misconceptions, stereotypes, and negative attitudes in society.

Students from Forest Academy and Summer Lane joined us for an afternoon of educational practices to help stop discrimination in the game. The students were also joined by Barnsley FC defender Barry Cotter, Barnsley Women FC player Charley Evans and Barnsley FC alumni Kayode Odejayi who interacted with the students during the ‘Change Makers’ section where they showcased what they had learnt and what changes they would like to make and see going forward. A lucky student from Forest Academy went home with a Together Red 23/24 signed Barnsley Shirt for his contribution and involvement throughout the afternoon.

Premier League Primary Stars Officer at Barnsley FC Community Trust said: ‘We were really excited to welcome back SRtRC this year. The educational practices and interactive activities are really well received by the primary schools and help to deliver the important message in a fun and educational way. We look forward to working with them again in the future. We would also like to thank the Barnsley FC players and alumni for joining us at the important event’ ­

We are thankful for our partnership with Show Racism the Red Card and look forward to working with them in the future to help deliver their ever-important message to Show Racism the Red Card.
